The Firebrand

Author(s): Marion Zimmer Bradley


Marion Zimmer Bradley, theNew York Times bestselling author who reimagined the legend of King Arthur and Camelot inThe Mists of Avalon, delivers another alternate vision of classical myth withThe Firebrand - a tale of the Trojan War.

Born of noble blood, Kassandra is destined for a greater life than that of a Trojan princess. Even before her mother sends her to live among the Amazons, Kassandra is chosen by the Sun God, Apollo, as his priestess-and has the gift of foresight bestowed upon her.

She has foreseen the destruction of Troy-a great war between Akhaians and Trojans and the wrath of the gods upon them all. But on one believes Kassandra's prophecies . . . or heeds her warnings about the woman known as Helen of Troy.

'A grand story in the storyteller tradition of old.'

'Bradley animates . . . the conflicts between a culture that reveres the strength of women and one that makes them mere consorts of powerful men.'
